Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Good Vibes Only

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! We made it to 2021!!! This is a great time to start fresh with a new art journal that will hold GOOD VIBES ONLY! To kick things off, I’m working with the Tim Holtz Travel Folio and will continue adding to it until it’s stuffed full of all the delicious details it can hold.

I don’t typically start with the cover but thought I’d set the stage for how I want the interior pages to look and I’m feeling the Shabby Chic vibe with Speckled Egg.

Texture is a favorite element for me and for that I’ve used crackle paste with the BoHo Circle stencil. Since I’ll be using this journal a lot for the next few months, I’ve sealed the crackle paste with a coating of Matte Gel Medium to keep loose pieces from falling off.

The interior has a notebook with plenty of pages to jot down personal thoughts or even sketches, and the waterfall tabs are perfect to add mini pieces of art. The flaps of the folio bring the outside in. I love this folio because it closes securely with elastic straps.

I’ve filmed a process video that you can view below. Again, Happy New Year!! Enjoy!!
